To follow up his #1 smash hit All About TonightBlake Shelton has released the more softer ballad Who Are You When I’m Not Looking. The song is actually unique and a topic most people can probably relate to. It’s a good twist for Shelton who seems to always take a little heat for his brashness on his Twitter account.
Shelton has released plenty of sentimental sounding ballads including The Baby, Goodbye Time, and Home. This new track – Who Are You When I’m Not Looking– is a song about a guy that wants to get to know his woman better. He is very attracted to her good looks but he is reaching the point in a new relationship where he starts to wonder who she is when he’s not looking.
It’s a great hook and something most can relate to. It’s the curiosity in all of us that make us want to figure out the answer to this question when we get to know people.
It’s quite common in country music for songs to be recorded by multiple artists. Joe and Blake have a lot in common. Their voices sound a tad similar and they’re both still climbing as country stars.
You’ll have to listen to them both and determine your favorite.
I like Joe’s version, but I think Blake’s version will climb the charts as well.
